Riverdale season 1 getting a bluray release via WarnerArchive.

http://tvshowsondvd.com/news/Riverda...-Release/23311


No word yet on whether Lucifer season 2 will be getting a bluray version. (Season 1 had a bluray version released via WarnerArchive).

re: Why isn't TV-on-Blu-ray getting any love?

Honestly I'd gladly accept burn on demand releases if it meant the Blu-ray releases for shows that I collect that have stopped getting releases (Louie, which is available but DVD only and The Simpsons) would see future releases. At least something like the Warner Archive is still a decent option as you still get pressed discs in a decent package. Sure no extras but it would be better than nothing. I give WB props for giving fans of Riverdale that option.

Riverdale on DVD in stores but Blu only via mail order??? They've got it backwards- in the last years of 8-tracks, you could only get new albums through Columbia House while stores had the newer formats!

A better analogy may be the availability of Laserdisc vs VHS copies in stores. Even though Laserdisc was the technically superior version, VHS was the dominant format.

DVD is still the dominant format for TV shows. The studio isn't doing anything other than following market demands.

Two different groups are handling 'em. Warner Home Video for DVD, Warner Archive for BD. If not for WA picking up the slack, there wouldn't be any BDs at all. Ditto for Lucifer, iZombie, etc.

I'd love to start picking up Lucifer on blu, but I don't have any faith it'll continue to stay available on the format.

Fox at one time liked testing how well FX shows sold on BD, so they would get a first season BD release. They then started fully embracing digital streaming, which killed off their tv sets.

re: Why isn't TV-on-Blu-ray getting any love?

I have the Americans on DVD. TV on DVD are about the only standard DVD's I buy any more. A) most TV seems only available on DVD. B) I like to bring season sets with me on business trips and binge watch in the hotel room.

re: Why isn't TV-on-Blu-ray getting any love?

Here's an interesting turn of events. Wynonna Earp season 1 going bluray-only possibly. (ie. No dvd version).

http://tvshowsondvd.com/news/Wynonna...Season-1/23329

It appears it is going through an indiegogo campaign, to see whether there's any interest to release it at all.

re: Why isn't TV-on-Blu-ray getting any love?

I bet titles would sell OK on Blu-Ray only if there were no DVD option. Those who care about quality got Blu-Ray players a long time ago, those who don't care can take up streaming.

re: Why isn't TV-on-Blu-ray getting any love?

For something like an Indiegogo campaign, I'm sure it helps to focus on one format (unless you were going to support multiple formats at retail anyway), and the folks who support campaigns like this are probably more likely to be interested in BD than DVD.

I was googling yesterday and apparently Disney has zero plans for a Gravity Falls release, which is unfortunate.

That's Fox, and so I've been deeply appreciative that they're still releasing pressed DVD's rather than having gone the MOD DVD-R route the way they have with many of their other shows. Every time I buy a Season I figure it could be the last. I shouldn't have to feel relieved, but it is what it is.

There's apparently a regular Australian BD release, though I don't own it. I'm interested in Wynonna Earp, but hesitant about Indiegogo. I've heard that they can take money but never deliver? I'm thinking it might be better just to try to import from Australia.

Indiegogo is just a middleman for the creators of campaigns, in this case IDW Entertainment. It's basically a site that makes it easy for people to set up their own crowdfunding campaigns.

IDW Entertainment produced Wynonna Earp, and is part of a large corporation including the IDW publishing arm, which published the Wynonna Earp comic.

Typically with Indiegogo you have to worry about projects that aren't complete yet, or possibly not even started, by new and/or unknowns. With this, the Blu-ray is pretty much guaranteed to be delivered, since IDW won't want to deal with the damage to their established brand. It's basically a fancy pre-order, so IDW can figure out how many sets to print.

Thanks for the advice and info! I've long been familiar with IDW (though not their non-comic operations), but hadn't thought through the fact that their connection would make this more reliable than many other Indiegogo projects.

For years the only way to get Prison Break's entire run on Blu-ray was importing the set from France.

re: Why isn't TV-on-Blu-ray getting any love?

In December last year, they released seasons two and four here in the US. Yeah, it was odd that seasons one, three, and The Final Break have been available for awhile now. But this is the first time you can buy them all together. Oddly enough, it looks like you still have to buy The Final Break separately.

re: Why isn't TV-on-Blu-ray getting any love?

I just saw this post on Digital bits and figured this would be the best place to put this information, but a Friday Night Lights Complete series set is coming to bluray on 9/12. I still have the dvd series set, but I know I have seen plenty of posts here wishing this would finally happen.
